Nightly Conversations with Former Versions of Me


Published 2004


Something very different from the back catalog of previously unreleased AViD recordings - a short album comprised entirely of guitar, recorded live with a 4-track recorder in a Houston hotel room during the Summer of 2004.

A stylistic departure from the electronic music AViD usually creates, but also a harbinger of the atmospheric "Promises" & "Regrets" double LP of 2008, these sparse but melodic and atmospheric songs were built layer by layer without any computers or subsequent editing.

Says AViD: "A few technological steps and 5 years back in how I approached making music. I needed creative outlet, but could only fit my guitar, recorder and effects box into my car for a summer in Houston. The possibilities and tensions were enticing - once the notes hit the metal oxide, I had decisions to make -let it lay or take it back forever by erasing and re-recording the whole track. So, while there's an immediacy to playing live and settling into a groove or atmosphere, each song really took quite a while to finish. I spent countless late-night hours listening to playback, re-recording, staring at the little LED monitors and pan pots on my 4-track machine, coming to terms with what I was trying to say when jamming along with three earlier versions of me, each with their rough edges and moments of avid earnestness."
